KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Health and Population has urged private hospitals to reserve 20 percent beds for COVID-19 patients.

The Shukraraj Tropical Hospital, Bir Hospital, TU Teaching Hospital, Armed Police Hospital, Patan Hospital, CIVIL Hospital, Bhaktapur Hospital and Kirtipur based Ayurvedic Hospital have already been recognized as COVID-19 treatment hub hospitals in the valley.
